American rapper and businessman Diddy’s recent woes about his behaviour towards women may not be over yet.

Following Cassie’s recent sexual abuse lawsuit against Diddy, a former head of security for the Bad Boy producer, Roger Bonds, has chosen to break his silence.

Cassie sues Diddy

 Cassie, a former romantic partner of Diddy accused him of rape and abuse during their time together.

In a lawsuit filed Thursday, Cassie, known in real life as Cassandra Elizabeth Ventura, indicated that she suffered physical abuse including being punched, beaten, kicked, and stomped on by Diddy over the course of their relationship.

The two swiftly reached a settlement in the case less than 24 hours after the filing by the “Me and You” singer.

In an Instagram story post deleted later, Bonds claimed that Cassie’s allegations were true, emphasizing that his message should not be misconstrued as a “threat” or “snitching” against either Cassie or Diddy.

He made it clear that he witnessed such incidents during his tenure as the rapper’s bodyguard and was compelled to speak out in light of recent events, particularly for the well-being of his own children.

“This is not meant to be threats or snitching or anything like that against Cassie or Diddy or anyone else,” The Source reports Bonds to have written Bonds wrote.

“This is me telling my truth as I truly remember it for 2 reasons only, 1st because I have 4 daughters so on all dudes my truth as I seen it, saw it and was involved with for years.”

More sexual abuse allegations

Meanwhile, Diddy is facing fresh accusations of sexual assault. An anonymous accuser has come forward, alleging that Diddy coerced her into a sexual encounter more than 30 years ago.

The lawsuit also implicates singer-songwriter Aaron Hall, suggesting that both artists took turns engaging in non-consensual acts with the plaintiff and her friend. MCA Music Entertainment and Geffen Records are named as co-defendants.
